07 Jan Ken Paul – Chase Photo Gallery (2000 to 2004)

Adam Perez – Vancouver Metro Jam 2003
Adam was a young rider from Oregon that was picked up by MacNeil. Like a few others, he was blasting this hip all weekend, and to me, this shot sums up the whole vibe of that contest.

“From early 1999 until late 2003, Chase BMX Magazine was a quarterly publication focusing primarily on the Canadian scene. I was fortunate to be the editor for its four year run, and along the way I started taking photos. We had mediocre photo equipment, and possessed little of the skills cut out for it, but what I did have was a lot of talented subjects to shoot with. Chase was published by World Bicycle Sports Incorporated, who also founded Up North BMX Supply, Ten Pack Distribution, MacNeil Bikes, Metro Jam, and the Pivotal seat. At the time, the magazine served as an advertising medium promoting the brands that Ten Pack distributed, while at the same time trying to grow the sport in Canada and abroad. While we printed about 10,000 copies for Canada, 5,000 copies made their way to the US and 1,000 more to the UK. It was a great ride while it lasted. In the late summer of 2003, we decided to fold the magazine and focus our attention more on the other ventures at World Bicycle Sports. I was going to include all of my favourite shots from over the years, both during Chase and post-Chase, but we don’t have enough bandwidth for that. Instead, these shots were all taken from 2000 until early 2004. These were all shot on film, and some of them I cringe when I see the imperfections, whether it’s composition or technical. In the end, it’s a snapshot of a time that I look back upon quite fondly. We were really just a bunch of guys having the time of our lives growing and creating, whether it was history or friendships.” -Ken Paul

03 Dec Throwback Pic – Jay Miron

jay

Any Canadian who has actually rode BMX knows that Jay Miron is a legend. For those of us who live in the eastern half of Canada, every spring he gave us an amazing indoor contest to ride and watch some of the best riders in the world, also known as Metro Jams. From Road Fools 5, insane video parts, to Elevation, Jay had a huge impact in BMX in Canada. As much as BMX is being pushed year after year and will evolve with time, things like this boost and the 540, the gap to rail at McGill, the double flip, and more will always be historical and relevant in BMX.

Read on to see the picture of the 540 he also did in the deep end of the Hastings bowl and to see his last full video part which had a few epic last clips that I strongly doubt anyone will ever come close to, ever. As much as Jay has been known to be outspoken in his ideals and beliefs, his riding has always spoken louder and his contributions to furthering BMX in Canada (and globally) cannot be ignored. Long live the Canadian Beast.

29 May Dillon Lloyd’s Layover/Hangover Day

Dillon had a layover day in Vancouver Saturday May 25th, on his way from Montreal to Hong Kong for the Eclat Kings of Kong trip. He actually did a fair amount of drinking the night before, which lead to a layover/hangover Saturday.

What started out as a rainy day ended up being an awesome day, between finding a bunch of dry spots and riding with some good friends/Canadian legends, we made the best of Dillon’s Vancouver layover/hangover.
